New Delhi must take effective and verifiable measures to strengthening the security of its nuclear materials, said Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri while responding to a question regarding illegal sale of Uranium in India.

Speaking during his weekly news briefing in Islamabad today, he said Pakistan wants peaceful relations with all its neighbours, including India, but we also believe that this requires a meaningful engagement to resolve all outstanding disputes including the issue of Jammu and Kashmir.

The spokesperson categorically dispelled the impression that any legislation has been made to let Indian Spy Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav go.

He said the legislation regarding Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav has nothing to do with letting him go. He said Pakistan abides by all its international obligations and this legislation applies to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) judgment in the case of Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav. He said the legislative measures taken by Pakistan are aimed at giving full effect to the ICJ judgment.

The Spokesperson said ICJ requires the Government of Pakistan to provide an effective review and reconsideration to the decision in Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav case.

Replying to a question about Financial Action Task Force (FATF), Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said reaffirmed Pakistan's resolve to further strengthen its Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism regimes to align it with international standards and obligations.

The Spokesperson, while answering a question, said that Pakistan wants peace and stability in Afghanistan for which reduction of violence is imperative.
